    Submarine Through Pressure Hull Glands and Equipment Glands

    Hydro Group plc designs and manufactures subsea Submarine Through Hull Glands and Equipment Glands to client specifications. Our proven engineering expertise means that we can design Submarine Through Hull Glands and Equipment Glands for any underwater application.


    Hydro Group plc has been working closely with the M.O.D. to develop fiber optical copper configuration to include both existing Submarine Through Pressure Hull Glands (PHG) standards and Equipment Glands. Submarine Through Pressure Hull Gland's and Equipment Glands have been successfully deployed on S, T and V class submarines.


    Submarine Through Pressure Hull Glands and Equipmet Glands carry an extremely high capacity of data and therefore can help to reduce the previous level of equipment fitted to submarines, and in the case of communication and control systems reductions could be as great as 50%. Other benefits include fewer penetrations to the submarine hull which will increase the integrity of the hull as degradation can occur at the point of penetration, as well as water leakage at weakened interfaces. In addition, inspection and maintenance can be dramatically reduced over the life cycle of the submarine which is likely to exceed thirty years.
